This past week we had the Mission President and Sister Wilstead come to ... I guess at least 1-2 times a year they will pop into a town for the district meeting and sit in during lessons and other activities to give comments on how we can do some things better. They didn't have a chance to see my companion and I teach because we didn't have any lessons in the first part of the day that they were here. The district meeting was so great. The President Wilstead gave an example of committing someone to church. Wow! I can't believe how he said it. It literally felt like it was a do or die scenario. It made me really, really realize the importance of the Sacrament. It was awesome how he said it. It was also funny because he paid for lunch for everyone and we got Marios sandwiches (It's a place here) and it's funny because it's all in Bulgarian letters for the menu but it sounds out the English word of what the thing is. So it's not even the Bulgarian word for the thing. There's a few places like that here because there are a lot of tourists here because of ... and other monuments. Anyway while they were here, they gave me the birthday package that you sent. I have to admit, I wasn't patient and opened it the first chance I got. I'm waiting to open the card until my birthday actually comes, so I'm still excited. I love the ties, they're super nice.We also went on exchanges. I had to plan the whole day because it was my area with another Elder. His name is Elder ... and he is actually from Cedar Hills, so not to far from home. Anyway, the whole mission felt different because it was with someone with a completely different attitude.
Here's another church. I love the architecture of churches and also another picture of how green part of our area is.
